3 things about Ignatius of Loyola:
1. If you were still looking for a way to up your prayer life or a tool helpful for confession, consider Ignatius’ daily examen.
2. He is THE founder of the Jesuit order.
3. This happened in part because his leg was shattered by a cannonball. He was a military superstar in the making, and that came to a halt with a sudden blow. He read about the life of Christ, and life for him was never the same. In fact, during that year, he wrote out the daily examen.
